  1. Hi all! We are very excited to present a composition project that has been a long time in the making. We have created the Potter Scoring Project, where we constructed a score for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire in the style of John Williams, imagining the musical continuity that could exist if the thematic material from 1-3 connected the following movies. This started with the idea of using the Voldemort motifs in the graveyard scene for his return, and we have utilized the other existing themes throughout (the first cue uses a fusion of one of the Voldemort themes with Hedwig). We've attempted to emulate Williams’ writing style to musically unify this with the first three installments. This isn’t meant as any commentary about Patrick Doyle’s score, but rather an exploration of how Williams may have developed and evolved his material farther in the series to create musical unity. There is also a thematic catalogue of the existing Potter themes for reference. We are eager to share this with the people here at JWFan who can appreciate this endeavor and who love these scores and movies! At our website, you can read more about this and we will post new sections of the score every week. You can also subscribe to email notifications for these. We would love to hear from you all, here or via email at ravendorstudios@gmail.com. Check out the first cue now! https://sites.google.com/view/ravendor/goblet-of-fire Ravendor Studios
  2. Are the members of JWfan also into writing their own music?
  3. This is a new song I created, for a "planned" movie. It plays as Alex Harper (a character based on Tintin) walks out of class clutching one-half of the treasure map that leads to a school treasure. However, Alex and his friends, Cassandra and Archie (archibald Haddock, anyone?) run into Allan, the school bully. They start arguing, and during that, Alex drops the paper, which is promptly picked up by an elementary student who runs off with it. Shortly, Alex and Allan find that it's missing and chase after the kid into the school fare. After Alex catches the kid in slow motion (Pursuit of the Falcon), the ruckus they have caused has caught the attention of Mr. Kaufman, the strictest teacher on campus, who confiscates the paper. This song is heavily influenced by Williams, and it was my first use of syncopation. It does sound very random at times, but that's because I was trying to emulate Williams' modern action cues. There are a few recurring motifs: Allan's Theme (Sounds a bit like the secondary motif in Flight of the Bumblebee) The Treasure Theme (Sounds like Zimmer's "Mermaids" combined with the Unicorn motif) Trio Fanfare, to represent Alex, Cassandra, and Archie (sounds a bit like the trio fanfare in "Pursuit of the Falcon") The Pursuit Motif (a syncopated group of notes that appears throughout the score) The songs that I received the most influence from are "Flight from Peru" (the beginning pizzicato) "The Basket Game" "The Snake Pit" "Flight to Bagghar" Enjoy!
  4. So yeah, this was a piece I wrote for my friends (since they think everything I write sounds like a "hot airballoon ride". I explored the concept of leitmotif and having each cue have its own theme (as Williams does). I'm posting it on this website because, well almost everyone here is a John Williams fan, and I'm sure you'll be able to find each theme of the characters/scenes on your own (based on extensive cue/soundtrack analysis I've found here.) Here is a more detailed list of each cue featured in the score: Opening Fanfare ( - ) Introduction of the Hero and the Glance ( - ) Setting Up and Take Off ( - ) Flight of The Dirigibles ( - ) Death ( - ) The Villain's Airship ( - ) Stare Down ( - ) The Chase Scene ( - ) Hero In Trouble ( - ) Flames!( - ) Victory! ( - ) Peering Over The Edge ( - ) What's That? ( - ) Ascension ( - ) The Audience Waits ( - ) Return ( - ) Hero Fanfare ( - ) Race Fanfare ( -end) In the song, there are about three distict themes featured throughout the score: The Race Fanfare The Hero's Theme The Airship See if you can find each theme, as they are occasionally hidden! This is a sort of challenge for you Williams fans out there and a way to get my work critiqued by trained ears! Just so you know, I'm only 16, stopped playing piano years ago. It was written on Finale 2009 by hand, since I have no keyboard/midi cable. Enjoy!
